Mario Muse has been a bay area DJ and promoter for over 10 years as well as big supporter for local bands. As a kid he was far more interested in his record collection featuring bands such as The Monkees and Cyndi Lauper versus toys. His early roots of live music and an underground community come from the SKA and Reggae scene which he still holds near and dear to his heart. That all changed when he was randomly gifted "The Smiths - Louder Than Bombs" at the age of 13 and ever since has been ab obsessive fan of all things Morrissey. For the past 6 years Mario has thrown the infamous Morrissey and Smiths tribute night at The Milk Bar called "The Queen is Dead" and done various guest DJ spots throughout the bay area as well as in Portland, Chicago, and Florida. His DJ sets have spanned everything from Death Rock to Minimal Techno but these days his main genres of choice are Brit Pop, Post Punk, Indie, Punk and some Rock.
